Residual ridge resorption is a term used for the diminishing quantity and quality of the residual ridge after the teeth are extracted.Compared to maxilla the mandibular ridge shows more resorption.The denture becomes passive due to poor neuromuscular control,difficulties facing during impression making,mastication,swallowing which in turn leads to loss of retention and stability to the complete denture.Presence of flabby tissue even worsen the condition after wearing ill fitting prosthesis for a prolonged period.Successful denture treatment in situations like this can become increasingly dependent on the modified impression techniques,position of the denture teeth and external contour of the denture.This is a clinical report where modifications of impression techniques like admixed technique,window impression technique and neutral zone technique have been incorporated to provide best possible retention,stability and support to the complete denture.
